Cool What Pedal Should I Get????

I'm looking for your opinion on a pedal that drives and sustains BUT keeps the original amp tones with no coloration. I'm not a big pedal guy, and I love my strat sounds, but they are a tad thin compared to my UV, RG, Jem sounds.

Example: a Tubescreamer colors too much.
a Zak Wylde colors too much.


I just want to boost the amp tone and fatten up my strat for solos!

What do you pedal guru's suggest?

A TIM pedal by Paul Cochrane. Roughly $170 if you order directly and wait a little bit. There's one on THAT auction site: 7336035056
You can see its controls and see how it looks there.

I say this red pedal(sorry i dont know the name) and its called "Pickup booster" It is supposed to make your signal alot louder , it also makes a single coil sound like a humbucker vice versa, but i don't know if it's that good.

Fulltone's OCD overdrive has been getting lots of good reviews. I'm getting one in hopes of replacing my Sparkle Drive.

Ha- beat me to it! Actually I was thinking the Timmy would be a good choice too, and a lot cheaper than the Tim. I've got one and love it for low-gain OD. ALTHOUGH- you do mention you're using a Strat- you should also take a look at the AC Booster. I think with the humbuckers I was using it thickened up the mids a little too much (nowhere near TS levels though), but with my Strat it 'fattened it up' nicely. The RC Booster has much less gain and is more transparent to my ears if you wanted to look at that as well.

A booster pedal would do the trick...

Fulltone's Fat Boost is a good choice.

'Keeley Electronics' do some awesome boost pedals that won't colour your tone at all.
